Beat a tabls. or two of the soup into the egg yolks, then stir egg yolks into the soup. Reheat the soup but do not let it boil after adding the egg yolks. Serve hot accompanied by sour cream ( a dollop or two gets added to each bowl ) or cool the soup and chill in refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Serve cold with sour cream. Serves 6 to 8 ADVICE FROM MAMA: If you cannot find sorrel, substitute 1 lb fresh spinach and proceed with the recipe exactly as above. You will probably want to add more lemon juice..
